For any fan of the Planet of the Apes saga, this blu-ray box set is ideal. The visual quality of these classic 70's films is gorgeous but unfortunately the clarity will further enhance the lessening budget from sequel to sequel. (The 5 films / discs are: Planet of the Apes, Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Escape from Planet of the Apes, Conquest for Planet of the Apes & Battle for Planet of the Apes.) There are many extra features which may account for the occasional audio compression issue (loud effects / score vs. softer dialogue). The Planet of the Apes disc has a plethora of extras including audio and text commentaries, "science of" featurettes, archival footage, and the full-length documentary Behind the Planet of the Apes which also includes interactive texts and clips. The other discs include trailers, galleries, d-box, and isolated scores, as well as making-of featurettes or retrospective documentaries. Additionally "Conquest" includes both theatrical and unrated versions, and "Battle" includes both theatrical and extended versions. The package design is unique with saga timeline and a wonderful pull-out hardcover book, The 40 Year Evolution - Planet of the Apes (200 pages of photos, trivia, text etc.). Overall this epic tale of oppression is fascinating and thematically reflective of the still relevant civil-rights movements - and the Planet of the Apes 40th Anniversary blu-ray package is fantastic. Highly recommended.
(minor issue - getting the discs in and out may be annoying as the center holders are made of an odd rubber texture mold, and not always easy to work)
